Safer Drivers Course
The Safer Drivers Course for Learner Drivers was launched by Roads and Maritime Services in July 2013 and was initially delivered by 14 approved companies (service providers) in most regions around the state. In January 2014, 8 new providers came on board to expand the range of course delivery and improve accessibility to young learner drivers in NSW.
The course was designed to give young learner drivers a better understanding of the behavioral factors that can lead to a crash, and to build on their strengths with regard to how they can be in better control of their risk levels. Completion of the course will give the learner driver a credit of 20 hours in their log book.
So far feedback from attendees has been fantastic and take up of the course has grown. The cost to attend is $140 and is the same regardless of company delivering the as it is subsidized by the State Government. For further information on this initiative, please go to:
The NSW Driver Trainers Association has a partnership agreement with the PCYC to supply instructors to deliver the in car sessions of the course. This is a great partnership as it allows for a high level of professionalism across the board and with the widest spread across the state. To view details of courses being run by the PCYC, go to:
